Basic Grey Snow Much Fun

Another Christmas Card with Non traditional colors. This snowman is long retired but still one of my favorites. The base of the card is Soft Sky. The next layer is Basic Grey with the Snow jumbo wheel rolled across in Going Grey ink on top. The bottom of the grey paper has the little snowflake from Perfect Presentation stamped on it in Going Grey. Next is a strip of Basic Black that has been paper pierced along the edges. I layered a piece of designer paper from the Soft Sky Prints collections on the black piece. The snowman is stamped on Whisper White with Basic Black ink and layered on Real Red. I colored around the edges with Going Grey marker to highlight. I also chalked an oval around the bottom of him with a mask made from our oval punch. The hat and heart are paper pieced with paper from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin Kit. His nose and scarf are colored using markers. The final piece is the little black scallop circle with the snowflake from Season of Joy stamped in Soft Sky on Whisper White. This is hung from basic black grosgrain ribbon with silver cording. I added a piece of red polka dot ribbon and a red stone to finish. I hope you enjoyed.
